“To walk through Grand Central Station every day and know my associates restored it, and I helped contribute to their culture, gives me great joy.”

In her 30 years overseeing Beyer Blinder Belle’s administrative operations, Marilyn Marullo has helped guide the firm from a small architectural office in Manhattan’s West Village to a multi-disciplinary design firm well regarded in and beyond New York City and Washington DC, where the firm has offices. While Marilyn’s appreciation of the arts initially drew her to BBB, the collective personality of the partners – collaborative, compassionate, and of the highest integrity – coincides with her own values.

Working with a partnership that values equally the design and the business of architecture, Marilyn plays an integral role in the firm’s daily and long-term management, from strategic planning, legal and insurance matters to overseeing staffing and human resources, facilities and technology. As a past president and board member of the New York Chapter of the Society of Design Administrators, Marilyn has addressed numerous professional organizations, sharing her expertise on such topics as policies, procedures and strategic planning, including serving as lead speaker at the 2005 American Institute of Architects’ national conference panel, “Getting to Great.” Prior to joining BBB, Marilyn was Vice President of Greenwich Associates, a strategic consulting and research services firm.

Marilyn holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Connecticut and has Certificates in Business/Finance and Managing Design Firms from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and the Harvard Graduate School of Design, respectively.
